For years, the gods and goddesses have watched on while the humans developed through the years, as they advanced both personally and technologically. Lately one thing has become quite clear to them; humans have a habit of being very irresponsible when it comes to their environment and the animals that reside within that environment. They came to a decision, fearing for the safety and longevity of their sacred animals, they have decided to create a special group of nymphs to help protect their sacred animals.
These nymphs’ life forces are each attached to the animal they are a nymph of; if that animal becomes extinct, the nymph will die. The gods considered the fact that here are thousands of animals and creatures that roam the earth, but not wanting to over extend their powers, they have decided to only concern themselves with the animals that are sacred to them.
When they aren’t out in the world helping other nymphs and helping to protect their animals, they spend their time at camp.
Summer 2012-Spring 2014
Hecate created Yoomi to protect pugs. But, it turned out that Yoomi needed a lot of training before she could go down to the real world. Hecate trained and trained her, but it was all gibberish to Yoomi. She had noticed wolf guardians when she was created, and she was immediately fascinated. The wolves were everything that she wasn't. In some attempt at defiance, she refused to get any training done. Why this would work, she wasn't sure, so it was no surprise when she was trained more and more. To her delight though, some wolf guardians were still up on Olympus, so she could watch them. Hecate tried and tried to train her, but to no avail. Yoomi's fascination with wolves began to seriously get on Hecate's nerves. Finally, she gave up and asked Lyssa what to do.
Lyssa suggested that Hecate should give Yoomi a potion that would make her insult wolves involuntarily. Lyssa continued, saying that Yoomi's insult could indirectly insult Zeus, which would lead to him banishing Yoomi. Then, Yoomi would be forced to do her job and would no longer like wolves. Hecate agreed, but reluctantly, as she felt guilty. However, she went through anyway, creating the very potion and giving it to Yoomi, telling her that it would make her a wolf guardian. Yoomi drank it eagerly and immediately began to spew out insults, talking about how bad wolves were. Zeus, as Lyssa thought, was infuriated. Not only did he kick Yoomi off of Olympus, but he cursed her to always need attention, like a little puppy.
Yoomi wound up not doing her job, and instead, she let humans pamper her. Her brain, swayed by the curse, loved the attention, but a tiny part of her was upset that she was giving in so easily. Her want to be a wolf didn't fade, thanks to the tiny voice in her head that wasn't affected. When Hecate noticed that Yoomi was just slacking off instead of protecting strays, she sent her to camp. Now, Yoomi has to find some new friends, or else she'll feel neglected and alone.
